No, I've disabled Markdown for `mailto:` URLs when a `body` parameter is
provided. I did this, because the classic use of `mailto:` (a link on
some homepage) would naturally not use Markdown and could be
misinterpreted by MailMate.
If I remember correctly then I couldn't see any security issues with
allowing the body to be interpreted as Markdown.
I'm not sure how it's best to improve this. I could introduce a
non-standard `markdown-body` parameter which would avoid ambiguities,
but some users would likely also want Markdown enabled for existing
`body`-URLs. I could do both or I could just make it optional how `body`
should be interpreted...
